Dinosaur Jr.'s Album Cover Creature Comes to Life in Their "Take It Back" Video
The trio's 'Sweep It into Space' single has been given the stop-motion treatment
Published Apr 21, 2021Days ahead of sharing new album Sweep It into Space, Dinosaur Jr. have delivered new single "Take It Back" alongside a new video.
Directed by Callum Scott-Dyson, the accompanying visuals bring the colourful creature found on the cover of Sweep It into Space to life for an adventure, exploring creation, dependence, coming of age and communion over its four-minute runtime.
Scott-Dyson shared of his work, "I wanted to mix those themes with my style of stop motion animation, everything being very DIY and handmade, using any materials I could get my hands on to bring the idea to life and give it a surreal and otherworldly feel. I've always been a really big fan of Dinosaur Jr., so I was working extra hard to do something that could add to such an awesome track and sit alongside it."
"Take It Back" follows previously shared singles "Garden" and the Kurt Vile-assisted "I Ran Away." Dinosaur Jr. will take Sweep It into Space on a North American tour later this year. Guitarist Lou Barlow recently announced a new solo album.
